Wolves have enjoyed an exceptional season.
Under Nuno Espirito Santo, they secured a seventh-placed finish in the Premier League and remain in contention to win silverware this season.
Their 1-0 win over Olympiacos in the Europa League on Thursday confirmed a 2-1 aggregate victory over the Greek side, and booked a quarter-final meeting with La Liga club Sevilla.
With the games now taking place as one-off knockout ties, there is every chance that Santo’s men could go all the way.
That would subsequently secure qualification for the Champions League.
Nevertheless, their squad needs to be rebuilt and refreshed in the summer to ensure they remain competitive in the 2020/21 season, though that could well include exits as well as arrivals.
And it appears that Rafa Mir could be one such departure.
Signed by Wolves from Valencia in 2018, he enjoyed loan spells with Las Palmas, Nottingham Forest, and Huesca over the past three seasons.
Mir, a centre-forward who can also play as a right winger, has made just four senior appearances for Wolves and it appears that he will be leaving Molineux in this transfer window.
Sport Witness carries a report from Mundo Deportivo, claiming that Mir has received 30 offers in this transfer window.
Nevertheless, he is said to have made a decision to stay at Huesca, having helped them win promotion to La Liga this season.
He has scored nine goals in 18 outings for the club.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
It certainly appears that Mir has found his level.
Wolves have a number of attacking options; the likes of Adama Traore, Pedro Neto, Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota, and Daniel Podence all offer pace, finishing ability, and dynamism in the final third.
Mir is going to struggle to break into Santo’s side if he did return and it makes complete sense for him to move to Huesca.
He has been in excellent form and he is valued at £4.5 million by Transfermarkt.
A deal at that sort of fee is value for the Spanish club and also boosts the coffers of the Midlands clubs.
Wolves should let him go.News Now - Sport News
